Hi there! It’s Cha here with my last card for the Christmas in July event. For this card, I used the Coffee Flavors Digital Set and Christmas Cocoa Digital Set.
First, I printed the digital stamps that I’d chosen for this card – the mug, the cream, the candy cane, and the sentiment. I cut these images around them with scissors. I decided not to use an electronic cutting machine because the cream image was a little difficult for me to cut it electronically. Later, I foiled the mug and the sentiment in gold. I just put the gold foil over the images and passed them through a laminator. Then, I colored the mug and the candy cane with my Copics.
In order to give some dimension to this card, I added some dimensional clear glue to the cream image and added to it some embossing powders that when you heat set it, the embossing powder increases its volume. Before this “cream” run dried, I added the candy cane image and a sequin, a peppermint candy. I glued this piece over the mug.
To create the background, I glued a piece of black cardstock on a white standard base card. Then, I trimmed a piece of patterned paper, just a little bit smaller than a standard card size, and glued it on top of the base, so this leaves a black frame around. The mug and the sentiment were added with some foam tape to the card.
To finish off this card, I added some different sequins, gold pearls, and snowflakes sequins. I also gave some shimmer to the mug.
I hope you like this card and give a try to the Christmas products from Joy Clair Designs! As you can see, these digital sets are very versatile and you can combine them! Thank you so much and see you soon!
